Baco noir

Baco noir (pronounced BA-koh NWAHR; Baco noir is also called Baco 1) is a hybrid wine grape variety produced from a cross of Vitis vinefera var. (Folle Blanche, a French wine) and a unknown variety of Vitis Riparia (an American wine). Baco noir was first created by French wine hybridizer Maurice Baco (hence the name of the wine). Baco noir is mainly grown in New York state, in the United States.
